We report a case of crossed aphasia following a vascular insult of the right hemisphere in a middle aged dextral man with subsequent evolution to pure word deafness. Development of pure word deafness during recovery from crossed Wernickes aphasia is an extremely rare clinical entity. Probably th...
Determinants of DNA-binding specificity of ETS-domain transcription factors.
Molecular and Cellular Biology 16(7):3338 (1996)
Several mechanisms are employed by members of transcription factor families to achieve sequence-specific DNA recognition. In this study, we have investigated how members of the ETS-domain transcription factor family achieve such specificity. We have used the ternary complex factor (TCF) subfamil...
Internal packing conditions and fluctuations of amino acid residues in globular proteins.
